The hockey board met on February 7, at RACA.


League scoresheets are being collected and should be turned into Andy
Rynearson. There are enough Squirts to have three teams in the WMHL Festival,
to be held the end of February.


Kristi Brown has applied for a weekend of concessions at the Game Day
tournaments. She is willing to do the organizing and ordering, but will need
someone to help with the supervising the concession, during the weekend. The
parks and recreation committee will be deciding which organizations will be
running the concessions. Thank you, Kristi for organizing this fundraiser.


Playdowns were completed last weekend. We will have four teams competing
in the state tournaments: U12 Girls, Squirt A, Peewee A, and Peewee B. The
state tournament fee is $650 per team. Expenses will be shared with our co-op


The association received a donation from True Value. This donation consists of
a variety of hockey equipment and supplies. Thank you to True Value for this


There have been a few people who have not shown up for concession shifts.
A suggestion was made to buy more items in bulk and to check prices with

various vendors, to increase concession profits. Teri Senzig will be retiring as the
concession manager. Thank you, Teri, for all the time and work that you have
given to running the concession for the last several years.


A request to purchase ice cleats for the rink crew, locker room vent covers, and
hand sanitizers for the rink was made. Erik will purchase the cleats and vent
covers. Katie is looking into obtaining hand sanitizers. We also discussed the
possibility of purchasing new flooring for the locker rooms; the old mats would
then be used in front of the bleachers. RUCLS will not be able to intstall WiFi this
season, but will have it completed by next season.


We will be renting ice to Ultimate, March 15-17. Reedsburg will be the main rink
for this tournament. After the tournament, the rink will be closed and tear down
will start.


The annual meeting will be held the first or second week of April, depending on
availability. Suggestions on how to increase participation were discussed. It was
decided to have the meeting at the VFW and to provide pork sandwiches and
other food.


The Squirts will be hosting a tournament, February 8-10. Katie Pfaff is the
tournament director. Thank you to Katie and all the Squirt parents who have
been working to make this tournament fun and profitable.

Our Mites will be hosting the Sauk County Mite Fun Day, at the end of this month.
Jennifer Baldwin is in charge of this event. Thank you, Jennifer, for organizing this


There will be a motion hearing on February 15. The former treasurer has filed for
bankruptcy. Reedsburg Youth Hockey has been named as a creditor. To protect
our claim for restitution, it was decided to hire a lawyer to protect our interest
and to represent the association.
